The American Automobile Association's Auto Buying Program helps customers to buy a car by providing access to special deals on both pre-owned and new vehicles. AAA members buying vehicles through the organization's program are guaranteed to receive upfront pricing that does not require any haggling. Members purchasing pre-owned vehicles also receive access to special purchase incentives.
The AAA Auto Buying Program is a referral system that directs members to local dealers that are participants in the program. Participating dealers agree to a one-price system and follow all requirements of the program. Dealers qualify for the AAA Auto Buying Program through various metrics, such as an outstanding customer service reputation, low-pricing agreement and a wide selection of vehicles.
The AAA Auto Buying Program is a club car buying service and is only available for free to members of the organization. According to Edmunds.com, this type of service is generally limited for personal service but is effective when purchasing commonly available car models at under market prices.
The AAA is a nonprofit federation of North American motor clubs and was founded in Chicago in 1902; as of 2015, the AAA is headquartered in Heathrow, Florida. The organization reports approximately 54 million members.
